lies in store for the president the next four years. >> the first time president barack obama took the oath of office -- he did it in front of the biggest crowd washington d.c. has seen it all of its history. almost 2 billion people here to hear him make the promises. >> on this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dog was that for far too long have struggled our politics. >> things did not help out -- but things did not work out as he hoped. things in washington remain politically terra -- politically polarized. president knows republicans can once again put a stranglehold on his political agenda. topping his priority list, immigration reform, gun- control, and a balancing energy production with climate concerns. but his first priority is getting congress to increase the nation's debt ceiling at that talk about cutting the debt. that's where some think he will try to cement his legacy. >> he's going to try to get our long term in thailand obligations under control and set us on a new fiscal course. >> the presi
everything else that president obama has said for four years about his view of the muslim world and the war on terror, that they are much safer, much more likely to decide to use force to take hostages than in previous years. and i think we're seeing the evidence of it right now. martha: yeah. president obama was emphatic about the fact that he suggested this would be done, those killers would be tracked down from the benghazi raid that killed four americans. that has not happened. as we pointed out. your mind goes back to other events in the past in terms of retaliation like the uss cole for example. like the bombing at the world trade center in 1993 which we know was followed the up, you said it many times on this program, you know, they have got a lot of patience and they have a lot of time f they feel there is an opening and a window, al qaeda proved to us time and time again they will continue to strike. >> that's why this attack on a natural gas facility in algeria is significant. this is a direct attack on a critical element of algeria's economy. i think as bill said a moment ago, th
, 2013 will be the year that we accepted a nuclear iran or we went to war. for more on this, you can read my column in this week's "time" magazine. let's get started. >>> when president obama chose the conservative republican for the post of defense secretary, you might not have expected opposition from the right, but you would have been wrong. while many conservatives support hagel's nomination, there is spirited opposition from the right. perhaps the first public opposition to chuck hagel was a column in "wall street journal" by its foreign affairs columnist bret stephens. he leveled a charge against the former senator, one of the first full throated defenses of hagel came in the "daily beast" from the editor of that website's blog and the author of the "crisis of zionism." joining me now bret stephens and peter beinart. brett, let's start with you, you essentially accused chuck hagel of being an anti-semite. >> i said there was an odor of prejudice. >> what evidence do you have thats is the case? >> he had this famous statement that i'm sure you heard several times by now about the jew
york. >>> well, president obama says america is on its way to a good year when it comes to the economy. but there is a big if here. ali velshi has some thoughts. he's up next. >>> president obama says he won't negotiate any spending cuts with a gun held up to the head of the american people. from the cnn money newsroom, in new york, i'm ali velshi. this is your money. apple gets a bite taken out of its stock. toyota and gm are neck and neck again. first gold and now oil. california will be a prospector's dream again. and stocks are up, but should they be? first, president obama spoke with reporters today emphasizing his position that the debt ceiling is not a license to spend more. it is about paying bills that congress has already agreed to. he likened it to stiffing the waiter at a nice restaurant after gorging on a meal. >> you don't go out to dinner, and then, you know, eat all you want, and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking the law. >> u.s. hit the debt ceiling on december 31st. the treasury is using so-called extraordinary measures to put off any
attack since before obama even got into office, and i think a lot of us shared that concern several years ago, and it was reenforced when he said to the reference of remember these people stick to their guns and their religion, and when he made that statement, i think that was really a wakeup call for a lot of people. >> we have behind you semiautomatic rifles, and there are people who stricter gun regulation in the united states. why do you need a semiautomatic rifle if you're a firearm supporter. how would you react to them? >> semiautomatic rifles, for example, the ar-15, is really part of our culture. anybody that grew up, did military service in the 70s, was trained on an m-16, and it's kind of consistent with what we do with appreciating using similar-type weapons that we were trained on in the military, but this is a civilian legal version of the same thing. >> quickly, supporters of the second amendment believe in their need and right to protect the citizenry against aty rankle government, is that accurate? >> it is. a lot of that is lost in translation where people don't realize
.s. president says they plan to hire more than 100,000 veterans over five years. the program starts on memorial day. he says all vets without a dishonorable disharj are eligible. first lady michelle obama called the decision historic and says she will urge other companies to do the same thing. critics say wal-mart officials are trying to repair the company's image, after discriminations of unfair labor practices. be that as it may, rick newman is here, author of the book, "rebounders: how winners pivot from setback to success. i am sure what every veteran has been dreaming about is being a stock -- re-stocker at wal-mart. but >> i don't think that's why they went into the military, to stock shelves. it is a nice gesture by wammart. tell certainly is a good cause. their heart's in the right place. wal-mart has had controversy, recently, accused of cutting benefits, keeping people on part-time status so they don't have to pay for full-time status. will the policies be different with veterans? the you keep them on part-time status so they don't get benefits? or will you give them a better path to
to our top story. we're awaiting president obama's new gun control proposals. the president is expected to caller to the most sweeping changes to gun laws in years, if not decades, prompting concerns among supporters of gun rights in this country. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm sure glad you're not stuck between two walls. that would put a damper on the show. jon: would make it difficult to get here and do the research. jenna: we'll try to get answers on that story. hi, i'm jenna lee. in less than an hour the president will outline his efforts to curb goon violence. he is expected to ask congress to ban military-style assault weapons. many of you have questions exactly what those weapons are. we'll talk a little bit about that in the program. also on the list, suggestion to ban high-capacity magazines as well. the white house also made it clear the president will act unilaterally where he can to achieve this agenda. this comes in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. a tragedy certainly no one wants repeated. how to prevent that type of

'll continue to do that for the next four years and i think we are all kind of used to it by now. jon: let me reach a floor beach that senator obama gave in 2006, ellen. he said leadership means that the buck stops here. instead washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. america has a debt and a failure of leadership, americans deserve better, i therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. that was what senator obama had to say. why does it not apply now that he's president? >> well, first of all, you know, i don't understand why it applies or not applies, that's what he address ned his press conference. what i do want to address is the mainstream media. a lot of people think it's a liberal by as and it may be liberal by as, i don't know, i'm a liberal so -- okay. what i do think it may be is media laziness. i have to fault the mainstream media for not putting side-by-side the president's comments with his votes. i think that american people, no matter who is president, whether it's president bush or pres
